Maximum Compensation For Negligent Dog Bite Injuries
Dog owners in Houston have a responsibility to keep the public reasonably safe from getting bitten by their pets. While most dogs seem tame, they can be unpredictable. If it attacks someone, especially a child, a dangerous dog can cause terrible harm.
At Willumsen Law Firm, P.C., we have been helping victims of dog bites and their families for more than 20 years. After being injured by a vicious dog, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Attorneys Fred Willumsen and Donal McRoberts will make sure the dog owner’s insurance company pays you a fair amount in damages to cover your injury-related expenses.
We work on commission, so we charge you nothing until your case settles or we win in court.
What Dog Owners Are Supposed To Do
In Texas, dog owners have the legal duty to take reasonable steps to minimize the risk that their animal will injure somebody. Depending on the size and aggressiveness of the dog, these steps can include:
- Using a leash while walking the dog
- Keeping the dog contained in the yard using a fence, leash or both
- Training the dog to heel
- For some dogs, using a muzzle when in public
Because of their size and curiosity, children are especially vulnerable to dog bites. If your child has been attacked by a dog, they may have suffered serious injuries. They may also be left with permanent scars and mental trauma. Even though they are larger, adults often cannot fend off a powerful and aggressive dog, and suffer serious harm as a result.
We are experienced and successful trial attorneys with more than 20 years of hands-on experience. We will work with you personally to establish your claim and pursue financial restitution.
